Army Student Loan Repayments

The Loan Repayment Program (LRP) is a special incentive that the Army offers to highly qualified applicants entering the Army. Under the LRP, the Army will repay part of a Soldier's qualifying student loans. This is only available to enlisted Soldiers.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Must decline enrollment in the Montgomery GI Bill in writing, using DD Form 2366
  • Have LRP guaranteed in writing in the enlistment contract (DA Form 3286-66)
  • Be a non-prior service accession
  • Enlist with a high school diploma
  • Have an Armed Forces Qualification Test score of 50, or higher on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)
  • Enlist in one of the critical military occupational specialties (MOS). These MOS change quarterly. The local Army recruiter will have the current list
  • Possess a loan that was made, insured, or guaranteed under the Higher Education Act of 1965, Title IV, Part B, D, or E and prior to entering active duty

Note: It is Army policy that no one be enlisted with a defaulted loan. Therefore, defaulted loans will not be repaid.
